The CARE Center now has three convenient thrift store locations in New Hope (5039 Main Dr), Gurley (6124 Hwy 72 E), and Guntersville (1644 Gunter Ave)!

All offer a unique environment with gently-used items at affordable prices for every budget. Our donations come from the support of our neighbors and mission partners. In addition, revenue from the thrift store ministry provides funding for the many other ministry initiatives The CARE Center provides, as well as crisis assistance and job opportunities.

We offer donation pick-ups! Please call 256.723.2281 well in advance to ask about scheduling and availability.

Our thrift stores gratefully accept the following items:

  • furniture – beds, sofas, dressers, dining tables, etc.
  • household goods – dishes, paintings, etc.
  • holiday decorations
  • children and adult clothing and shoes
  • fashion accessories – jewelry, purses, belts, hats, etc.
  • clean children’s toys (preferably in working order and with all parts)

We are unable to accept mattresses and tube televisions.

Finally, our warehouse can recycle damaged clothing, shoes, purses, belts, and hats for extra income. It would be helpful (although not necessary) if these items were bagged separately and labeled “RECYCLE.”

All locations are open Tuesday – Friday from 9 AM – 5 PM and on Saturdays from 9 AM – 4 PM.

The CARE Center thrift stores have a separate Facebook page for posting weekly and holiday sales. So be sure to stay connected!
